Ireland’s Covid-19 vaccination programme is constantly improving, after a rough beginning relative to other developed countries.
Currently, approximately 53% of all adults in Ireland have received one Covid-19 vaccine, 25% of who are fully vaccinated.
The most vulnerable and moderately vulnerable in Ireland are now effectively protected against Covid-19.
Meanwhile, health care workers in third world countries in some instances are yet to receive even one Covid-19 vaccine, and in many instances have not received a second Covid-19 vaccine.
US President Joe Biden announced that the US will be donating 75% of its unused Covid-19 vaccines to the Covax programme.
Giving that Ireland has its most vulnerable, and moderately vulnerable, vaccinated against the virus, and many of the vulnerable in the third world are yet to receive a vaccine, should developed nations do a lot more to protect the global community?
After Ireland has its over-40s fully vaccinated against Covid-19, should the remaining vaccines be donated to third world countries who are yet to vaccinate their most vulnerable people?
Or, should Ireland continue to vaccinate everyone eligible in the country before giving aid to third world nations?
